Your order is picked/packed that day, we do not store ready bagged product, which is why we must adhere to the cut off time. Each consignment is made in boxes capable of handling 28kg safely.

For overdue invoices, a late payment fee of £35.00 + VAT together with an interest fee of 10% of the order value, will be charged per month thereafter.

Due to a number of shipping cost increases, new customs rules and regulations being put into place by our haulers, we have now to price each international parcel over 2kg on an individual basis. This is the only way in which we are able to obtain the best possible value for the size of shipment you are looking for. We are unable to offer standard overseas shipping rates, please therefore contact the team for a quote for your shipping based on your location, size and type of consignment. We will endeavor to get back to you straight away with your bespoke price. Please be aware that there now maybe Customs charges of £25 to pay on top of your shipping rate, this will all be included in your shipping quote when requested.
We have kept the prices as competitive as possible, and we don't wish to have to keep notifying customers of price changes every time our couriers change their prices, and so we charge a flat fee of £8.00 for each consignment up to 25kg in weight. This is then worked out in multiples of 25kg.
10kg = £8.00
20kg = £8.00
25kg = £8.00
30kg = £16.00
40kg = £16.00
50kg = £16.00
60kg = £24.00
75kg = £24.00
These prices are based on next working day delivery. If you require a guaranteed time or a Saturday/Sunday delivery. Please add £20 to the standard cost of delivery.
